Our services maximize reliability in five dimensions:
- Getting your facility in S.H.A.P.E.TM
Our system aligns people, product, and process along 5 dimensions we call S.H.A.P.E. For a service to be reliable it must be Safe, Healthy, Asset friendly, Productive and good for the Environment.

Lean Six Sigma
Varsity’s janitorial operation system lowers cost and reduces variation in your janitorial service while maximizing your safety, health, asset preservation, productivity and environmental (SHAPE) metrics.
Varsity also applies Standard Work to your janitorial services. “Standard Work" is a method, within Lean Sigma, that organizes work into time, tasks and workflows. The method helps reduce variation in the way the service is performed leading to more reliable service.
Our experience has shown that the best janitorial services have at least 5% waste in their processes while average and unsophisticated services can have between 10 and 30% waste.
Partnering with Varsity, you can capture the savings that minimizing such waste brings about. Our service is as much about methodically eliminating waste as it is about the actual service.
With Varsity you get a partner who improves your business model by removing unnecessary cost from your facility services.
